Description: A societal and individual problem today is intimate partner violence (IPV) (Wray, Hoyt, & Gerstle, 2013). IPV is widespread in all cultures and a global mental and physical health challenge (Crane & Easton, 2017). Efforts have produced little reduction in IPV. Any and all intimate relationships hold the risk of IPV (Williams & Stansfield, 2017). This study examines IPV through interviews with MH professionals and implications in the COVID-19 era.
